Dividing Fractions

Does anyone know of an applet or animation online that clearly demonstrates the process of dividing fractions? None of the textbooks I've seen make any effort to depict it graphically. They do it for multiplication, but then bail out on division. I can draw it for individual cases, but I would really like something more dynamic, so that students can investigate multiple examples for themselves.
